That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 6.5.17
Question of the Week: Name three skincare products you’re currently loving…
Answer: That’s an easy one! All 3 of my current faves are from the same line: Raffaele Ruberto R-Lift Trio: Formula no. 9, 10 and 11.
I discovered the line on a recent trip to Nordstrom to check out their Natural Beauty section, where the salesperson RAVED about the organic line. (He also told me that the founder, the uber-babe who is the namesake, was a chemist who once worked at La Mer…but I can’t confirm that anywhere online.) Anyway, I got some samples and was on my way.
Flash forward to now, and I see why he was gushing. This trio is amazing. Forget the organic skincare of yesteryear that you bought at health food stores – these are total powerhouses!
All three contain the R-Lift Complex; their proprietary blend of ingredients that fight the 5 signs of aging instantly & cumulatively.
There’s the Formula No. 9 Face & Eye Serum, Formula No. 10 R-lift Neck & Décolleté Serum and Formula No. 11 Global Creme. All 3 have an herbal scent that I adore, and a light gel feeling (even the creme). True to their name, they do give a lifting effect that’s somehow not at all tight. They also reduced my redness and make my skin feel plump and hydrated.
It’s a high-end line (the products range from $90-$105), but expect high-end results. My skin looks better than it has in years! So, now it’s me who’s raving. Get some samples, I bet you’ll join in.
Here’s what was happening with the League last week…

Clumps of Mascara – A blast from the past of an old makeup look I did when I thought I wanted to be a makeup artist. Brace yourself…
EauMG – I’ve fallen for a perfume that smells like a day on the boardwalk – ocean air, carnival food and suntan lotion. I don’t think this was its intention but it makes me happy, so I’m not complaining!
